well, not sure how much interest there will be but it's finals day for Combo Breaker 2016. There's all the fighting games you expect but of particular note is the mystery game tournament where players are thrown into a different mystery game to compete in each round, usually games no one ever knew existed such as a space jam and jurassic park game with hilarity ensuing.

https://www.twitch.tv/bgcallisto/v/69211756?t=02h31m27s for that weird newer jojo game followed by some tetris.

https://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky/v/69323710 for various top 8s over the course of the day and we'll probably get to see who this month's dlc character for SF 5 is even though we'll be getting them in like 2 days. Man, they have a Vampire Savior tournament and I haven't played that game in over a decade.

Stage 1 music from the Game Boy shooter Solar Striker.  This one's been stuck with me for decades.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmljujpHusY&index=2&list=PLozlgT58fQtdrFcA0o5wfUw_Euc5JyAZT

Hell of a first post. Very nice read. Welcome!

I'm not an expert on the Atelier series, I first played Marie in the 90s and then played a handful from each generation. Iris is probably the one I've played the most in earnest, but I've sunk a good few hours into Totori and Ayesha as well. The series has come a long way over the past two decades, and I wonder if what you're concerned about is just... well, progress? I'm sure the PS2 and PS3 titles were met with similar concerns as both took the series in a whole new direction. Going back to Marie, or even Annie, is a bit of a clunky experience now, but they do have their charm. It's just one of those thangs, time marches on and demographics change.

Personally I'm interested in seeing the changes Gust makes with each iteration, I think I'd probably stop checking in on the series if they just put out the same thing each time.

If you're interested in seeing what Atelier Sophie has to offer, Derek and Mike will be streaming it Sunday June 5th at 12pm EST on our Twitch channel.

Oh I've been playing Blizzard games long enough to know that you stand absolutely no chance in those games if you just stroll in, you are most definitely going to be eviscerated by someone because there in every Blizzard game.

And yet even then I'd still probably have a blast playing it, looks about as thoroughly Blizzard as Blizzard goes.

I discovered something amazing! Nightmares are a lot less scary when viewed from a third-person perspective. That zombie thought she could sneak up to me, but I could see her without even having to turn around. Shooting a bow this way feels weird, though, so I may have to consider a new weapon... And okay, the new perspective didn't change the fact that the zombie was my sister and I was about to shoot her in the face, so... Yeah.

I've gotten used to the fact that sometimes Nightmares aren't all that bad...

Uh, about Hulu...

I'm in Europe, so CR is pretty much the only reliable streaming service when it comes to anime. Viewster has an okay selection but next to no aps.

I would say that Marty is correct in that they fall in the adventure/point-and-click genre.  There is a significant amount of VN characteristics, but there is more player interaction than a typical VN.  That being said, I thought AA5 tried really hard to get back to form after Apollo Justice, but as stated earlier, fell flat due to the poor ending (though definitely not ME3 horrible).  I hope that with the return of some classic characters (Maya, especially!!!!!), they can regain some of that old Ace Attorney spirit! 

Still confused aobut Capcom's business decisions though....they bring over AA: Investigations 1 but not the 2nd, then they bring over Ace Attorney 5 on digital download only.  Then they refuse to bring over The Great Ace Attorney, yet immediately announce Ace Attorney 6.  I am baffled by those particular decisions as they all did really well here in the states, to my knowledge.  Why choose some titles over others?

Because $$$$$$.

the lyrics to the battle song are just the words "chrono cross" repeated over and over again in rhythm with the music.

you can never forget this now.

I've been trying to play The Last Story.  But it forces you to pause the game every 20 seconds in order to change the configuration of a certain button between "gather" and "seek" even though there are two other buttons that do the same thing... And since Mistwalker didn't include an option where you can configure your own button scheme (or choose between more than the 2 horrendous options provided) this game has already gotten tedious and stupid 30 minutes in.  Why wasn't a bigger deal made of this?  It LOOKS like it could be tremendously entertaining, but because of idiotic and lazy design choices I'll never get to find out.

(and I'd sooner drink a shot of paint thinner than play with the nunchuck)

edit: closer inspection has shown that my L button might just be broken....

I was playing TLS a few years ago and from what I remember, your controller's definitely broken or your Wii's having issues. what you're describing is noooot normal operation.

fwiw, TLS i generally considered a worse operation rainfall game than XBC, but if you found XBC offputting because of the bloat wrt sidequests and limited characterization, TLS has a lot of characterization and doesn't go overboard on sidequests (note that some of them reset between chapters if you want spare money. You don't need to do them after the first time, except for the uh, frog one. Also iirc the next quest in a sidequest chain won't open until the next chapter anyway so you're not going to get bogged down in an endless stream of sidequests.) and you can fire banana peels at every single NPC in town.

-- edit --

ToP - Going for Undine. Dropped back to Normal difficulty and I'm probably going to leave it there. Hard mode wasn't really being problematic but suddenly everything's getting stupid romhacky hitsponge HP on hardmode now (whereas it's fine on Normal). Also not totally sure what the timing is for the standard two-hit combo -- with Gungnir, you want to start with a slash attack because it knocks the enemies back enough that the thrust attack won't clip through them, but I keep botching the input.

Anyway, hardmode shenanigans have me sufficiently annoyed that I'm taking an enforced break. And then I'm... leaving Linda^3 and Eternal Blue alone until I work through this vocabulary builder, and I have to finish up some stuff on Lunatic Dawn patch so probably minimal gaming for the next week.

I mostly just stream to PCs (and yes, I have a PC hooked up to my TV).  I'll agree that Crunchyroll's apps never seemed very good...but I don't use them.  Their website has always worked great for me.

Funimation's website, on the other hand, is an abomination.  Whoever designed that piece of crap should be shot.

I don't mind paying for things at all.  I just want them to actually work.

I try to support legitimate streaming sites.  Really, I do.  But Funimation's site is so bad I can't stand to watch anything on it...videos don't always load, some of their tabs don't even work, everything is so poorly organized, it takes far more clicks than should be necessary to do anything, every click is accompanied by excruciatingly long load times...

Get your fucking shit together, Funimation.  I may end up just going back to piracy...

Now that my PS3 is older CR barely functions on it except for 480p stuff.  It works OK on the WiiU but still lags and on computers I can only watch 720p. Funi still mostly works on my PS3 and streams well on my Chromebook. I keep it because its cheap and because its $49/year used to be 1.5 DVDs back in the day. Hulu is admittedly by far the best streaming site.

I used to have anime network, and remembering them streaming well (no game console apps to my knowledge) but their selection sucks.
